We encourage you to explore sources of financial assistance. Here are some suggestions:
Scholarships and Awards
MacEwan University’s Scholarship and Awards
As a MacEwan University student, you are eligible for a number of scholarships, awards and bursaries. Some are open to all students; others are program specific or for students with disabilities only. Browse through our online database to find out which ones you are eligible for.
The National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS) compiles a list of awards offered to students with disabilities in Canada. Check their Disability Awards page at www.disabilityawards.ca .
Canada Study Grants for Students with Permanent Disabilities (Student Aid Alberta)
Just like any student, you can apply to Student Aid Alberta for funding such as loans and grants. Visit the Student Aid website for more information. You may be eligible for the Canada Study Grants for Students with Permanent Disabilities (CSG-PD).
You may also be eligible for funding to cover the costs of some of the recommended services and technologies listed in your Individual Service Plan (ISP). Resources such as the Canada Study Grant for Services and Equipment (CSG-SE), and the Grant for Disabled Students (GFD) can help cover some of your costs.
SSD’s Learning Specialists will provide information about these grants and help you apply for them. Call us at 780-497-5886 to make an appointment with us to discuss your options.
